Job 21 to 24 Are you confounded by the responses of those who are asked; do you believe the Bible? Some answers come back like the Ethiopian’s question; how can I unless someone guides me? Or, the Bible is too hard for me to understand. Or, I am too busy to read the Bible and on and on and on go the answers to our question. Yet, Job centuries before even a word was written, he could say: “I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my allotted portion; he is unchangeable; whatever he desired, he does.” [Job 23:12] Did you catch that? Job had no Bible, no missionary came to tell him about God, yet he treasured the words of God. How did he know? “For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people are without excuse.” [Romans 1:20]
God has been silent with Job not because he didn’t want to interact with him but to prove to our arch-enemy the truth of what he knew about Job: There is no one like him. He is blameless and upright and fears Me. God knew that Satan was frustrated because Job did not curse him, yet He remained silent because just as a father knows their child, Job knew God’s character, and:
God knew Job’s character: if tested, he would come forth as gold.
Beloved, God knows who you are and how you will respond.
